Sunday night rock 'n' roll covers

In 2009 I'll be playing rock 'n' roll songs that have been covered by other artists, which have made the song more famous.

To kick things off here's
All Along The Watchtower.
"All Along the Watchtower" is a song written and recorded by singer-songwriter Bob Dylan. It initially appeared on his album John Wesley Harding. It has been covered by other artists in different genres, most notably by the Jimi Hendrix Experience.

The song was recorded by the artist as a quiet three-chord Folk song on November 6, 1967, at Columbia Studio A, Nashville, Tennessee. Accompanying Dylan, who played acoustic guitar and harmonica, were Charlie McCoy on bass guitar and Kenneth Buttrey on drums. The producer was Bob Johnston, who had been Dylan's producer since Highway 61 Revisited in 1965.
